    Hi Everyone,

    I've been looking for a way to jumpstart myself on a couple of projects. I've only ever made one quilt before -- a long time ago and with a lot of grandma's help -- and I would like to get started again. But that's another topic all together :D

    I live in a fairly quiet town in Southern California with my husband, son (7), and daughter (5). At the moment I'm a housewife with extra secretarial/accounting duties in my husband's business.

    I love crafts, especially crochet (avidly since the tender age of 6). Aside from that, my other two favorites are gardening and cooking. Love trying new recipes :D

    So that's me in a nutshell. Looking forward to making new friends and getting more inspiration in these boards!

    Hi! My name is Sharon and I also live in Southern California-San Bernardino County. I like to quilt, but it is hard to find the time. I am a teacher so I get to have vacations throughout the year so I can work on my quilts.

    I also love to crochet, and do other crafts! I will try any kind of craft project at least once to see how it turns out. Where do you get your ideas? I like to read magazines and visit web sites.

    Welcome to this site!

    I like magazines too, Sharon. I find that I get a lot of ideas from shopping too. If I find something I like that I think I can a) make better or b) make budget-friendly, I'll figure out how to do it. :D
